I love games that allow you to free-roam and this list has by far my favorite open world video games to date.

All of these open world games I've played and everyone has something different to offer.

There's some of the greatest, some of the hidden and a few games you may have forgotten about, either way I did my best to add what I thought was the best open worlds in 2016.

If you have any amazing open world games you'd like to add to the list please use the comments down below.

    Did you anyone here get one of my FREE games yesterday? I sent out an email via my mailing list and gave away 15 free games. I received a few thank you's which was really appreciated and of course the odd 'F you., you are a scammer'. It really isn't a scam, I have just bought a ton of game codes and I'm sending them out on my mailing list and whoever claims them first, gets a free game! if you want to join just sign up here and keep an eye on your inbox -

    am i the only one who really really liked sleeping dogs?

  • Trinity

    METAL GEAR SOLID V, THE WITCHER 3, and DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION... All beautiful open world games that should be mentioned within top 15, but I def like how original the list was, I didn't expect many of the choices. THUMBS UP. And... Skyrim only 10-15 hours..., I just started playing remastered for the first time and I'm just scratching the surface at around 20. I don't even play MGSV a whole lot, (not good at the game mechanics, lol) but still recognize it's mastercrafting. You sound like you would like the SOULS GAMES and BLOODBORNE. Not open world but by far my favorite games ever.

  • Justin R Varga

    Mad Max was brilliant.

  • GamesAlike

    All games are listed in the description. Cheers for watching, have an awesome day, Oli :)

  • 1967 Shelby

    Dying light no one plays that anymore but I love it.

  • DIO Oszyi

    What happens to Borderlands?S.T.A.L.K.E.RWitcher 3Metal Gear SolidGothicX3DAY Z ARMAOP FlashpointStar CitizenMafia Dragon AgeBatman AC ZeldaWOWto name a few and just in my opinion Oblivion is far better than Skyrim but year, the TES Series is great!!!

  • Sub Zero

    Don't forget infamous second son and final fantasy xv.

  • Smith Smitherson

    Who ever played Fallout 4 to the end and chose to join the Brotherhood of Steel, raise your text hands!

  • Cyrus the Virus

    People can say anything about Ubisoft but what's undeniable is the fact that the Far Cry series have such very complete, brutal and interesting titles like FC3 with it's outstanding story and badass and amazing game mechanics, same goes to the 4th one which is a total improvement of the previous one, best open world games are those two for me and nothing else.

  • Sean K

    Mad Max is a very very good game -- if you like GTA, Far Cry, etc. and especially if you like the movies (Mad Max, The Road Warrior, etc). Very entertaining game.

  • Mr Sickless

    Cool list but i personally wouldn't count Rust, Mincraft, Frost. As a open world game it kinda counts as a survival. (Before you hate on this comment i clearly said PERSONALLY)

  • KIM Jong-un

    Red Dead is my fav out this list, but great list, agree on alot of these!

  • Anna Gortat

    I recommend you The Witcher, or Rise of the Tomb Rider, but you probably already know that. :)

  • Keyu

    My list:gta5watch dogs2minecraftjust cause 3gta San Andreas

  • Tutilio

    Oblivion is by far better than Skyrim.

  • Carol Hewitt

    I think I have an addiction to mad maxI counted my hours on all of my saves and I have 3627 hoursHelp me.....

  • Gadgetron Guy

    My favourite setting in a game is assassins creed unity. The French Revolution is a brilliant time to set it in, the architect is amazing and also the civil unrest makes you feel like you're there.

  • Poe Lemic

    Very enjoyable video. Liked what you had to say. And, most of your chosen games were my favorite games too.

  • xCobi

    Mad Max is the best Game for under 5€ i ever bought ... super Story and a epic World

  • Roman Galich

    Really surprised you don't know much about the Assassin's Creed series, the newest Origins and then Syndicate are just absolutely amaaaazing.

  • S4N77U

    I'm so relieved that Far Cry is here!

  • Stealth_ Gamer

    Watch Dogs , Watch Dogs 2 , Final Fantasy 15 , Horizon Zero Dawn , Mass Effect Andromeda , Ghost recon wildlands , Batman Arkham Knight , Batman Arkham Origins , Spiderman are best open world in my opinion .............. These are the most played games by 2016/17 and have a ................. MIND BLOWING GRAPHICS !!!!!!!!!! . I think you should add to your list too ;D

  • The Big Dawg

    Red dead redemption 2 should be called "Redder and Deader than the last redemption"

  • Bouncy BaconGod

    I don't personally agree with all of the choices, but this guy is really funny.

  • ra!n5

    Mad Max is best and awesome, assholes...

  • Steel27Sentinel97Z

    Saints row 3 and 4 was the worst freemode games ever created.

  • Faze Koleg

    maybe im crazy ecpecialy with god of war and rdr3 release and the feedback they got... but Mad Max is the best game i EVER played its my all time best game idk it just left some heavy impact on me

  • Mass Games

    3:28 i always thought the same thing

  • Any Rebel

    Mad Max is underrated. honestly the only thing that hurt it was the sandbox gameplay that messed with the story. the dialogue and characters and story in mad max was so impressive..especially by video game standards. I even feel like they wasted mad max lore on this game and I really think it deserves a movie. It did feel like something was missing a bit though. Because I had to read character bios to make sense of stuff. They probably did the best they could do with the time and money

  • Utsav Pathak

    Everyone is dropping their list....So mine isSaints row 4 Witcher 3GtaJust cause 3and 2Far cry 3and5....Mafia 2Sleeping dogs Watchdogs

  • maulik jain

    GTA V was good then Rockstar fucked it up with microtransactions haven't played it for a couple of years.

  • aaron donahue

    No daggerfall? MURDER! Jk ;)

  • Raido Liiv

    Can you tell me, how to play with friend vs AI in (cracked) Swat 4??

  • ObeyKomplexHD

    Bro, you have tons of potential. Put LOTS of time into editing if you can. I noticed you put the names for the first 2 titles but not for any other games. Also near the end it felt kinda rushed. In no way am i hating because i dropped a like and a sub but a youtuber with lots of potential like you i really dont want to see you fail. I try upload weekly and re started last week but i needed an extra 2 days to edit so i took it. If you do that you could do amazing. Hope you succeed bro. Good luck!
